Kanji wear it, redux

Same question as last time - what do these letters say? The blood and skulls make it school unfriendly, but I'd like to know what the kids are parading around saying ...

Should our website be in both European and Brazilian Portuguese?

I help manage a website for an international audience; we strive to be inclusive. We offer several different language versions; our translations are done by volunteers. Generally we add languages based on whether we have volunteers to translate. We have been offering European Portuguese for a while. Now a new volunteer has shown up, asking to be invited to the project; s/he is offering to volunteer for a translation to Brazilian Portuguese, which we currently do not offer. [more inside]

What is this panel with Chinese characters about?

Asking for a friend, who has on his office wall this wooden panel, about 3 feet by 4 feet, divided into 18 sections each densely filled with Chinese (I assume) writing. It came from his mother's estate, he has know idea where she acquired it. There is also writing on the outside edges of the panel. It's hard to tell whether the writing was done directly on the wood, or on paper which was then pasted to the panel. Here's a shot of one of the sections, and here's another. Can anyone translate some of this and provide an idea of what it is all about? And any idea how old it might be?

(Translation help, please) Help me play this game I bought in Chinatown

I picked up a game of Chinese checkers (yes, I know they aren't really Chinese) to play with my family over the holidays and it came with a bonus game inside (photos here). The problem is, I have no idea what the directions say. It looks like a variant of "Sorry". We would love to give it a try, if anyone could translate or has played this before. Thanks!

Can you read and translate the Greek (?) text on these caps?

What does the text say on these pink bottle caps (image 1, image 2)? As I'm told, these were sold as inexpensive caps at a brew-your-own beer supply store in Texas. I'm guessing the text is Greek, but I'm just guessing. Thanks!

French speakers; shameless free translation request

Going through family papers, my partner recently found a 1950s newspaper article in French, detailing his grandfather's visit back to the area of France in which he spent most of his time in WW1. Google Translate gives us a stilted, semi-incomprehensible translation. We've recently been transcribing his grandfather's war letters and this article would be a wonderful addition to the document. I would be very grateful and owe a favour to anyone willing to have a go at turning it into English for us. It's only 276 words, so hopefully not too difficult. Text is under the cut. [more inside]

Could a fluent French speaker translate this for me?

I would like to know what the beginning of this song says translated to English from French (I'm assuming it's French; at least that's what it sounds like to me). Also, if there's any relevant information you can give me about the French that would be great (e.g., "It's a quotation from..." or "Everyone in France knows that this means...").

Does a stand alone translation tool like this exist?

The Google Translate app is awesome on my Droid 3 Android phone, especially the new conversation mode however it does not have an offline mode. I will be traveling where there is no convenient, fast, or affordable internet or cell service, specifically Cuba. Is there app or stand alone alternative that you know of? I especially like the speech to speech aspect of the conversation mode in google translate. English to Spanish and Spanish to English is what I am looking for.
